After his team’s worst half of basketball this season, Benet coach Joe Kilbride started to diagram a play. Then he suddenly stopped, erased what he’d drawn with a swipe of his hand and gave his players the halftime talk they really needed to hear.
“Forget it,” Kilbride said. “Just play!”
So they did.
The Redwings overcame a 19-point halftime deficit to stun the top-ranked team in Indiana, Homestead of Fort Wayne, 58-55 Saturday night at the 26th annual Chicagoland Prep Classic at Willowbrook.
